cockpit bulkhead positions

This months project is the cockpit bulkheads of which there are two. I've constructed them out of left over pieces of ply as it seems such a waste to use a whole sheet for such skimpy bulkheads. The downside is that scaffing the pieces together is quite time consuming. And I'd forgotten just how much dust scarffing creates!

The picture on the left is the aft bulkhead prior to bonding and the picture on the right is the fwd bulkhead after bonding. I've used release film and peel ply so finishing is minimal.
